What was that Mr Cartwright?

A snap from a rehearsal of The Snow Goose... it is tremendously fun discovering with James and Taryn the physical 'state' of their masks and consequently the sense of 'play' that neccessarily comes with it.  The seething and cowardly Mr Cartwright... The slow and measured Frank.  Suddenly they find themselves almost blind - and for James even partially deaf - negotiating our wonderful little stage - made by Duncan Gibbon. Theatre listening becomes about much more than being able to see your co-actor... and in James' case even hearing his co-actor properly!  ...What was that Mr Cartwright? Scary. But fun.  (see full image)
